Y'all should check out Ask Robins!, which is a hilarious tumblog comic starring (who else?) Batman's wards/sidekicks/offspring, who answer reader questions. emmypenny , you in particular. It is adorable and dorky.
Awesome poem from the genderqueerchicago blog called How To Make Love to a (Trans) Person. I added the parentheses myself, because, really, it's about love and respect and sex with a person regardless of their gender identity or sex. Thanks to my lady for linking me to it.
Thirdly, I have a book rec. Lynne Truss, the author of Eats, Shoots & Leaves, has written another book about the phenomenon of rudeness. Talk to the Hand: the utter bloody rudeness of the world today, or six good reasons to stay home and bolt the door is clever and funny and surprisingly thoughtful.
ALSO. Once we all have time for ST_D again, I feel that our next adventure should be a Perfectly Proper Steampunk Star Trek adventure. I have already half-begun composing Pike's orders from the British Imperial Admiralty about his mission in HMSS (Her Majesty's Star Ship) Enterprise to deal with a threat to their allies, the Vulcanians. I'm thinking a combo of high naval adventure, Victorian diction, and pulp scifi tropes.
To podfic_lover , your story is not done yet, but I am having Ideas(tm). Sorry for the wait, but RL is being unfortunate.
